Panorama

Oostvaardersplassen. 02/06/89; Flevoland; 5,477 ha; 52°26’N 05°21’E. Natura 2000 (SPA). The Site is an extensive area of shallow lakes, pools, marshes, reedbeds, Salix woodland and grassland within seasonally flooded agricultural land on the shore of the Markermeer. The Ramsar Site boundary has been aligned with the Natura 2000 site boundary, and dikes with roads have been excluded, resulting in a reduction of 28 ha in the area covered. The Site is of international importance for the biological diversity of the Atlantic biogeographic region. It supports threatened species of breeding birds such as spotted crake (Porzana porzana) and little bittern (Ixobrychus minutus). It also regularly supports more than 30,000 wintering waterbirds and more than 1% of the individuals of the north-west european population of gadwall (Anas strepera) and tufted duck (Aythya fuligula). Otters have also been observed. The Site plays an important role in flood regulation. Land use is dedicated to water management and tourism. There are a visitors’ centre and observation hides. The main threat to the Site is bird disturbance from recreation activities. Ramsar Site no. 427. Most recent RIS information: 2013.
